Buy with Confidence


This powerful design from the Silver Shield series exposes the terrible truth that trusting those in power is a path to sorrow. The sad fate of the Native Americans who trusted the government of the settlers will be ours if, like them, we are blindly lead, instead of forming what is around us. Broken and despondent, the once majestic leader traipses through the cold snow, oblivious to the people around him, his great confidence crushed by the harsh betrayal. The caring mother, a symbol not only of nature, but nurturing in its purest form, struggles through the cold, focused only on the immediate needs of her child. Lost and despondent, their fate serves as a warning, not only to vigilance, but to affect the change you need to see.

The obverse features artwork by Heidi Wastweet that is not only evocative and highly charged, but succinct and clear. With only two people and a few words, the entire mood and warning are clear. Not only is blind trust dangerous, but it affects everyone, regardless of their power, as typified by the Native Chief, and their selfless love as embodied by the forlorn mother. The scene is reminiscent of the "Trail of Tears" and other tragic journeys of the dispossessed after government betrayal. The snow is a reminder of the harsh world that selfishness and greed expose everyone to. The caveat, "Never Trust Government" is not a conspiratorial cry, but a cautionary warning that "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing."

The reverse shows the revised Silver Shield logo with the trivium in the centre encircled by the words "Silver Shield 1 Troy ounce 2014 999 Pure AG" surrounded by 47 bullets.

Made from one troy ounce of 999 pure silver this powerful message is must have not only for collectors but for anyone concerned about the world around them. It serves as a reminder to "be part of the solution, not the problem."

This round will come with a certificate of authenticity and a coin capsule.
